good evening. and it's great to have you with us here on a wednesday night. several developing stories as we come on. and we begin with the race for the white house. tonight, donald trump, the only republican left standing. the chair of the party calling him the presumptive nominee. and now, the new poll against hillary clinton. overnight, trump winning the indiana primary. another decisive win for him. shortly after, ted cruz abruptly suspending his campaign. and just a short time ago, john kasich bowing out, too. and now, that new poll tonight. with the country now acknowledging this will likely be trump versus clinton, hillary clinton right now with a 13-point lead. trump late today answering this question -- will he go after hillary clinton like he went after everyone else so far? abc's tom llamas leads us off with the answer. >> reporter: tonight, meet the new leader of the republican party -- donald trump. sounding almost surprised he's closed the deal.
6:32 pm
and now, knocking hillary clinton. >> i thought i'd be going longer and she'd be going shorter. she can't put it away. that's like a football team that can't put the ball over the line. i put it away. she can't put it away. >> reporter: trump today promising to be as tough on clinton as he was on his gop rivals. >> and again, a lot is going to depend on how they treat me. you've seen i'm a counterpuncher more than anything else. i don't really like hitting people first. >> reporter: he's already shown he can deliver a knockout blow to the republican establishment. his campaign so often dismissed as a long shot. >> donald is on a path to losing the nomination. >> i will support the republican nominee. i don't think that's going to be donald trump. >> he won't be the nominee. >> reporter: but one-by-one, his virals giving up. senator ted cruz -- >> we gave it everything we've got. >> reporter: and today, ohio governor john kasich. >> i have renewed faith, deeper faith that the lord will show me the way forward. >> reporter: now with his opponents sidelined, trump is
6:33 pm
looking for a running mate, and for help, he's reportedly turning to dr. ben carson. carson famously joked about being sidelined in the debates. >> i was going to ask you to wake me up when the time came. >> reporter: but now, he'll have his say on trump's vp search committee. carson has no government experience, but he'll help find someone who does. trump on "gma" saying that's what he wants. >> it will probably be a person with political experience. i would like to have somebody that could truly be good with respect to dealing with the senate, dealing with congress, getting legislation passed. >> reporter: that could mean he's looking at someone like former house speaker newt gingrich, who's been supportive. or iowa senator joni ernst. >> i grew up castrating hogs on an iowa farm. >> reporter: a harley-riding veteran trump could turn into a household name. or he could pick a governor like indiana's mike pence or florida's rick scott. >> and tom llamas with us live tonight. tom, i want to show everyone at home that image from last night,
6:34 pm
trump surrounded by his wife, his adult children, their spouses, and you've learned, they'll have a prominent role in this campaign ahead? >> reporter: david, campaign sources tell me that the trump children will be dispatched to important states by themselves to campaign and carry that trump flag. david? >> tom llamas, thank you, as always. and to the drms now, two candidates remain in that primary race. bernie sanders winning in indiana overnight and promising to stay in the fight, even though they essentially split the delegates. and hillary clinton with a ne nearly unbeatable delegate advantage at this point. and she's now being asked, is she ready for trump? abc's cecilia vega on how she answered that. >> reporter: tonight, hillary clinton launching her first general election attack on donald trump. >> i think he is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire. >> i am a unifier. >> reporter: backing it up with a new video. >> this is an individual who mocked a disabled reporter. >> ah, i don't remember. >> who attributed a reporter's
6:35 pm
questions to her menstrual ps h cycle. >> reporter: her plain laying it all on the line saying, donald, period, trump, period. i don't know how else to say it. the whole world is counting on us to win this thing. tonight, clinton's anti-trump strategy coming into focus. shell's hitting him on policy -- >> at some point, when you're running for president, you actually have to put a little meat on the bones. >> reporter: and refusing to play in the mud. >> if he wants to follow in the footsteps of those who have tried to knock me down and take me out of the political arena -- i'm more than happy to have him do that. >> you're ready for that? >> oh, please. i mean, look. this -- this is -- this is, to me, a classic case of a blustering, bullying guy. >> reporter: but club on the has to get past bernie sanders first. she leads him by more than 800 delegates, even after his big indiana victory. in order to clinch the nomination, sanders would need to win 95% of the remaining
6:36 pm
delegates. but he is not talking like a long shot. >> i think we can pull off one of the great political upsets in the history of the united states. >> reporter: clinton now hoping that history repeats itself. that the unity she showed in 2008 happens this time around in 2016. >> and cecilia vega with us live tonight, and so many people asking, cecilia, is hillary clinton ready for what donald trump will likely bring against her? and you've asked her that very question. >> reporter: i did, david. i asked her if running against donald trump would give her any pause, she said, not one bit. she wouldn't even let me get the question out, really. and you heard her say it again today, basically, bring it on. david? >> cecilia, thank you. and one more question on this before we move on. let's get right to jon karl. because jon, we showed the poll at the top there. hillary clinton up by 13 points over trump. but you're right there at the map. and listen, the trump team just wiped out 16 other republicans, he sees openings against clinton. >> reporter: they sure do,
6:37 pm
david. but make no mistake, hillary clinton begins this with a significant advantage. take a look at the map. the states in dark blue are states that have voted democratic in all of the last six presidential races. all she has to do is to hang onto those states and win the state of florida and she has the electoral votes to be elected president. what trump hopes to do to change that is to win his home state of new york, neighboring pennsylvania, perhaps even michigan. if he can do that, he can change the dynamic and he can win. >> all right, how long until november? jon karl, thank you. we're going to move on tonight, to other news at this hour. and to a horrific scene playing out tonight. an entire city evacuated. as a raging wildfire now moves in, devastating the heart of canada's oil-producing region. terrified families rushing away on the one road out of town. the flames right alongside them, leaving everything behind. in fact, hundreds of homes have been destroyed already. with a state of emergency now in
